The X Species: Evolution
The X Species is a new online series that investigates and broadcasts documented cases of paranormal occurrences and first-person “found footage” documentaries.
Deep in the mountains of southwestern Colorado, an elite archaeological expedition is on the verge of a historic discovery. Led by Archaeologist Dr. Sarah Parker, the group uncovers a prehistoric hominid burial site. As the expedition moves forward and press generating evidence is discovered, opposing agendas and interpersonal conflicts arise and the delicate core of unity among the group quickly unravels. When the team’s camp is mysteriously ransacked they find themselves with few defenses against the elements and even fewer resources.

Filmed in the cinematic tradition of Cloverfield, Blair Witch Project, and more recently, Paranormal Activity 1,2 & 3, The X Species will deliver the bone-chilling viewing experience that horror and science fiction fans have come to expect and embrace.
